Plot Synopsis

Created, written and executive produced by Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker, John C. Reilly, and Jonathan Krisel, MOONBASE 8 is a half-hour comedy series that's set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA's Moon Base Simulator, where astronauts Skip, Rook, and their leader Cap as they attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. Cap is a deadbeat dad from a failed marriage and his business went bankrupt, so this is more than a chance at space travel for him -- it's a moonshot at redemption. For Skip, living in the shadow of his legendary astronaut father wasn't easy, and he's finally ready to carry on his legacy with the same name -- but with far fewer qualifications. From touring the country following a rock band to answering a higher calling, Rook is now on a holy mission to spread the gospel throughout the universe -- one expedition at a time. The trio are joined by football champion Travis Kelce, who NASA recruited to increase the visibility of its astronaut program. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they're cut out for space travel. At the trouble starts immediately when they are faced with a water shortage, forcing the team to find an unorthodox solution.
